Chicago Review Press releasing latest edition of 'Harold & Maude'

High-ressmRemember the film??  'Harold and Maude' is the companion novel to the 1971 American dark romantic comedy and cult favorite of the same name. Colin Higgins wrote the novel shortly after the release of his film, and it has remained popular ever since. Chicago Review Press is pleased to be releasing the latest edition of Higgins’ cherished story, with a revitalized and fresh cover that will appeal to a new generation of audiences.

In August of 1988, shortly after his 47th birthday, Colin Higgins passed away from AIDS related illnesses. His legacies, however, will be lasting. The publisher is excited to announce that the book's royalties will go to the Colin Higgins Foundation, the organization Higgins established in 1986 to further his humanitarian goals and to carry out his vision of creating a better world. The Foundation supports numerous LGBTQ organizations, ranging from the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network to youth outreach and AIDS prevention programs. Since 1993, the Foundation has awarded more than 341 grants totaling more than three million dollars. Colin Higgins will long be remembered, not just for his heart-warming work, but also for his extraordinary humanity.
